However, Harbhajan Singh has denied plans of retirement indicating he is not going to retire any time soon.

“I don't want to retire now and just to want to continue playing for my fans. Same applies for Yuvraj and Gambhir also," he told Times Now. Further, he heaped praises on Chennai Super Kings’ captain MS Dhoni, under whom he is playing in Indian Premier League 2018.



“Dhoni was right that he needed someone who would take the ball away from the batsman. We have seen wrist spinners bowling more and more overs in the IPL compared to finger spinners. But I hope it would change next year. Well done to Karn and glad to be on the winning side,” Harbhajan said, defending Dhoni.
